Here's Your Chance
Tell the City Manager who you feel should be the next Chief of Police.

Click here on my blog which will take you to a survey that allows you to give your opinion to City Manager Pat West concerning what you believe are the qualities and skills needed in a Chief of Police.

The Long Beach City Charter gives sole authority to the City Manager (not the Mayor and not the City Council) regarding hiring and firing department heads, including the Chief of Police and Fire Chief.

Please take a moment to complete the survey. If you want to send me your ideas directly, e-mail:

Thanks for caring about Long Beach.
